"The 0.4.0 interim release of OpenNMS is a warning shot. The new open source systems management solution puts the commercial systems management software market on the spot. It asks big vendors such Hewlett-Packard and Computer Associates a tough question: Can proprietary software keep pace with advances in technology as well as open source software can?
